Cap savings $10,051,000 per OVER THE CAP
If Graham stays then Barnett should go, especially with the development of defensive end, Josh Sweat.
Barnett had strong moments in 2020 but still finished with just 5.5 sacks in 13 games, bringing his career sack total to 19.5 in four seasons. Barnett is still only 24 years old, but the Eagles are set to embark on a rebuild and the former first-round pick has the look of a cap casualty.
Barnett’s $10,051,000 salary isn’t guaranteed until the first day of the new league year, so the Eagles will either pay him, release him and save $10 million, extend him and save $7 million in space or trade him.
